If you are looking for a romantic stay in super cool, stylish accommodation, this little gem in the heart of Cornwall is a wonderful bet. It is absolutely stunning. It is situated in the village of Mitchell between Newquay and St Austell. This central location is brilliant for accessing and exploring the whole of Cornwall. Both the north and south coast are within easy striking distance with four or five stunning beaches just 15 minutes away. This beautiful holiday home is just two minutes walk from the local Plume of Feathers pub, a renowned dog-friendly pub serving delicious country-pub fare.
It is rumoured that this lovely building was once used by Sir Walter Raleigh to house his horses and cart during his time as elected Burgess of the Borough of Mitchell. Cornish Cart House is a wonderful example of a restoration of an interesting building. Stylishly converted, it is now a wonderful, bright and airy holiday retreat with nods from the past and ultra-modern, trendy accents.
The living space is open plan with a wonderfully high vaulted ceiling and gorgeous beams. Large picture windows and numerous skylights illuminate the brilliant white space which could equally serve as an impressive art gallery. It certainly showcases the handpicked furniture and accessories. You can relax on sumptuous tan leather sofas watching the huge wall-mounted smart television. The anthracite contemporary kitchen offers top-notch appliances and a cool breakfast bar with swanky bar stools. It matches the anthracite exterior, continuing the beautiful colour schemes throughout this dreamy home. Beautiful lighting hangs from the beams with a slight industrial feel.
The heavenly bedroom continues the grey theme with fabulous ‘cloud’ wallpaper decorating the feature wall. This wonderful room offers a super king bed which can be ‘un-zipped’ with prior notice to make twin beds as well as trendy freestanding clothes hanging space and another smart television. The vaulted ceiling and warm, atmospheric beams are delightful. Though minimalist in design throughout, Cornish Cart House is eye-catching and will certainly bring a smile to your face. Every detail has been brilliantly thought through. The bathroom is immaculate, complete with a large walk-in shower and fabulous marble effect tiles, another beautiful aspect.
Cornish Cart House offers one car parking space on the paved area at the front.
Cornish Cart House is located in the heart of Cornwall with excellent access to both the north and south coast beaches and attractions. Mitchell is a small village though it does have a pub and a local convenience shop. You can get to an M&S Food Hall very quickly as well as a Waitrose within 10 minutes.
On Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast, the harbour town of Newquay has previously been voted as ‘One of the Nation’s Favourite Seaside Towns’ in a prestigious Which survey, ‘Best Family Holiday Destination’ by readers of Coast Magazine and ‘Best Seaside Towns for Families’ by Days Out with the Kids. Newquay is one of Cornwall’s favourite holiday destinations with some of the finest sandy beaches in the country. If boasts some fantastic restaurants, seven miles of golden sand and many attractions. It’s laid back charm is delightful. The town is home to some of the world’s best water sports competitions including the Boardmasters Festival and surfing championships.
Slightly further down the rugged North Cornwall Coast lies the lovely village of Perranporth. Nestled amongst rolling hills in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Perranporth offers three miles of golden sands, clear waters, spectacular cliff walks and famous surf. Perranporth Beach is beautiful. You can take a surfing course at the well reputed Watering Hole Surf School. There are many events and activities, from the famous annual triathlon to the annual music festival Tunes in the Dunes. Perranporth is surrounded by countryside that inspired Winston Graham’s swashbuckling Poldark novels. The South West Coast Path can be accessed just a few minutes from the village offering arguably some of the most spectacular coastal views and ocean vistas in the country. You can take a 3.5 mile walk on the path from Perranporth to St Agnes experiencing the mining heritage as well as exploring the birdlife and wild flowers. The Perranporth Museum is very interesting with displays of the mining history, shipwrecks and lots more including an actual old Cornish cottage kitchen.
If you head in the opposite direction, you may like to visit St Austell or Mevagissey. The curves of St Austell Bay are golden with beaches and are a haven for watersports. Mevagissey is a delight with its working fishing harbour plus there are the lovely suntraps of Portmellon and Goran Haven. Not to be missed is the enchanting Fowey with its little ferry boats. The south coast is a green and gold tapestry of wooded hills and secluded coves where enchanting fishing villages are hiding. There are pilgrim trails, sleepy farms and ancient stones. You can visit the Eden Project, sail in a regatta or ride, as Daphne du Maurier did, far from crowds on a moor as old as time.
